HOLLYWOOD — Ted Gold has been upped to senior VP of series development at Spelling Television.
Gold, who’s been VP at the Paramount-based company for three years, will continue to oversee the creation and development of new comedy and drama pilots. He’ll report to Spelling Television prexy Jonathan Levin.
During the 2001-02 development season, Gold worked on more than 20 projects at Spelling, snagging three pilot orders. One of those three — David Mills’ already-buzzed-about drug lord drama “Kingpin” — will bow this winter on NBC.
“We are pleased to have Ted on our team during this exciting time, and we look forward to our continued relationship with him,” Spelling chairman-CEO Aaron Spelling said.
Gold said it’s “a privilege” to work with Spelling, Levin, Duke Vincent and the other execs at Spelling Television.
“I am thrilled to be a very small part of Aaron Spelling’s tremendous success,” Gold said.
Before joining Spelling, Gold was VP or creative affairs for Alliance Television. He also served as director of series and longform for New World Television.
Spelling Television’s current primetime skeins include the WB hits “7th Heaven” and “Charmed.”
